    I need a new bigger monitor but I'm undecided with which should I go.

    The new 27" samsung has lower resolution but it's LED and can convert 2D images to 3D if needed, uses display port, and has faster response time. costs only $800

    30" Dell has higher resolution and is bigger and in my opinion looks better.

    Any thoughts about it? I been thinking for about 2 weeks and still can't decide.

    32" 1080p HDTV will take care of that "problem" ;)

    There are some nice 2ms asus displays out there right now that are LED on the cheap. No 3d though.

    You're looking at totally different monitors. The Samsung is a thin, stereoscopic 3D monitor with a WLED backlight: good for gaming, movies, and boasting to your friends about owning such a sleek monitor. The Dell on the other hand, is a classic, CCFL-lit monitor with a professional-grade H-IPS panel for mind-blowing colors and viewing angles. Unlike the TN panel featured in the Samsung, you'll be experiencing true 8-bpc color, not dithered 6-bpc color as is the case with the former model. Gradients will be smoother and the out-of-the-box color calibration is usually leagues ahead of TN offerings (on top of the full color range). That said, it's still up to your needs: whether it's the Samsung's extra features or the Dell's beyond HD resolution and accurate colors.

    The Dell has DisplayPort too, as well as a plethora of other inputs worthy of the UltraSharp name.

    Id go with the DELL ultrasharp. Im very happy with my entry level IPS u2311h so Im positive that DELL with a higher end IPS panel will be even better

    I dont care much for the looks as most of the time you wont "see" the bezel design as you will be staring at the image outputted by the monitor..

    Other things to note on the dell are the ability to rotate, adjust the height and swivel it to your liking

    the samsung 750s looks superb and it be good for 3d surround. the one the OP posted is the 950. from what i could find they share the same specs. not sure on that.

    both the 750 and 950 also are tv's they both use dual tv tunners with PIP, they both come with shutterglasses both 120hz, the 950 says it has different color array"whatever that means" and the obvious bezzel design change.

    750 on left 950 on right

    Nice find, I think this will be my next purchase. It's LED with high resolution on a big screen, perfect.

    I have the Dell 3008 and my wife has the 22 inch Ultra Sharp. We play the same games and right beside each other. I can tell you with all honesty that there is no difference in IQ or any thing else for that matter. Of course, the 30 inch requires higher end video cards to run at 2560 x 1600 but other than that,my image quality etc. is every bit as nice as my wife's 22 incher. She has two GTX 480s in her rig and I have two 580s. Dell not only build great monitors,they have the best warranty. One pixel screwed? Dell will replace the monitor and in some cases may upgrade. They did it for me more than once. Get the Dell.
